Each week, The Independent will look ahead to the weekend's action in the Premier League with a video detailing five key things to watch out for during the matches.

Rather than just detailing what games are coming up or what our predictions are, every week The Independent's online sports writers will outline four areas to watch: what game to keep your eye on, the player to pay attention to, the story and stat of the weekend, and possible major upset of the weekend in a league where anything can happen.

Watch the video below to hear more about the build-up ahead of the Merseyside derby between Liverpool and Everton, with Brendan Rodger's side struggling to find their form from last season after two back-to-back defeats against the claret and blue of Aston Villa and West Ham. Liverpool and Everton have both only won one game so far in their opening five matches. Both could do with a win and yet Everton have not won at Anfield since 1999.

The other derby takes place in North London on Saturday as Arsenal - unbeaten in the league so far and yet with a string of injuries - face a Tottenham side who started the season promisingly yet have seen a dip in form of late.

Another game to watch out for is Manchester United against West Ham United. The Hammers have not won at Old Trafford since Carlos Tevez helped Alan Curbishley's side avoid relegation on the last day of the season in 2007, yet they will fancy their chances against a United side still reeling from their 5-3 loss at Leicester last week.

We also look at Burnley's shyness in front of goal and the emerging talent of Leicester’s Argentine centre-forward Leonardo Ulloa.
